An upper-level ridge is forecast to build into california beginning
Sunday afternoon. However...The impact of this ridge will be short-
Lived as yet another storm...Located near 36n/157e or south of
Kamchatka...Is forecast by the gfs to traverse the northern pacific
And reach california next tuesday. At this time...Storm number three
Is forecast to be a weaker system but this could change as the gfs
And ecmwf get a better handle on it.
